Behind the Neck Snatch Push Press + Overhead Squat
Work up a heavy load on the complex. This should ideally be close to or heavier than your best snatch. If you can’t fully squat overhead then perform the push press and lower to your best depth and hold for :02.

Introducing: Next Level Weightlifting Club at CFSBK
The Next Level Weightlifting Club offers Olympic lifting with strength training and mobility all in one. Lifts that will be performed include:
- Front Squat
- Back Squat (high bar)
- Push Press
- Snatch Pull
- Clean Pull
- Deadlift (Clean/Snatch style)
Weightlifting classes will be held in two-hour windows. While there will be a start to every class, you are allowed to show up at any time during the two-hour training session to lift. Those involved will receive the week’s program which they can either do during the training session or on their own times during open gyms. If you are unable to participate in class on a regular basis, you also have access to Coach Frank via email and can submit videos to be evaluated and critiqued. Think of him as your personal coach.
While there are universal weekly workouts, they can and likely will change from person to person depending on each individual’s needs. All people are different and therefore require different things to be successful. At Next Level Weightlifting Club, we take that into account and make adjustments as needed to optimize progress.
“Participants can expect to build a strong foundation focused around proper technique, mobility, and attention to individual weak points. Building this foundation will not only help lead to higher lifts but also set the base for continued and consistent progress. Moreover, by developing proper technique, mobility, and focusing on weak points, participants will become more confident, less prone to injury, and more consistent lifters. All of this giving you the tools for a longer, healthier, stronger career with the Olympic lifts.” —Next Level Weightlifting

SAY GOODBYE TO THE CFSBK RSVP!
Dear Members: we are no longer asking that you RSVP to any class at CFSBK. We launched this program to help manage class sizes and better utilize our space but to make a long story short, it wasn’t working, we don’t need it and now we’re ditching it. Please show up to any class without the need to RSVP. We thank our pious members who dutifully RSVP’d to their classes, you guys are wonderful. Please spend that extra couple seconds checking our Instagram account instead!
